If your bank account is looking a bit emptier than you would like it to these days, it’s best to be proactive. You don’t have to take on a second job to find some spare cash, if like many households you have a number of spare household items that you no longer use.

Real Rally Or Fake Rally

www.inthemoneystocks.com

Is this a real rally or a fake rally? This is an important question when you are thinking about buying or selling stock. The question can be answered very simply. All you need to do is focus on the S&P 500 high at 1,850.84. So far the markets have not taken out the January 15th, 2014 high (on an end of day closing basis). As long as this is not taken out then I would remain extremely cautious on this market.

www.moneysmartguides.com

When it comes to investing, there is no formula to success. There are many different profitable investment styles, thus we cannot say “just do X, Y, Z and you’ll be a millionaire”. However, we do know what doesn’t work – we know which investment styles / strategies lead to failure.
